"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
PreSchool-K Cayal loves to jump, and one night while jumping on his parents' bed, he and his bear take a giant jump all the way to the moon. There, Cayal meets a moon man and after jumping together around the moon, they have a snack before Cayal jumps back home and is tucked into bed. The pastel illustrations are attractive, but the boy appears physically larger and older than one would imagine from the text. Stories with fantasy journeys are quite common, and this one has nothing very special about it. Midnight Moon (Philomel, 1979; o.p.) by Clyde Watson is also about a moon journey, but its lyrical text gives it character lacking here. Nor is there the imagination and humor of Raymond Briggs' The Snowman (Random, 1986), one of the best fantasy journey stories of recent years. This is a pleasant enough story, but the moon journey is too unexciting to make it memorable. Jane Gardner Connor, formerly at South Carolina State Library, Columbia
